Rochdale v Coventry preview

The 21-year-old full-back missed Dale’s 2-0 victory over Peterborough through suspension.
New signing Lewis Alessandra may feature having watched the Sky Bet League One opener from the bench.
Other than injured duo Rhys Bennett (arm) and Matty Lund (knee), Dale boss Hill will have a fully-fit squad as they look to go one further in the cup after bowing out at the first hurdle last season in a 2-0 defeat to Preston.
Marcus Tudgay and George Thomas are battling for Coventry recalls when they head to Spotland.
The pair are in contention with Adam Armstrong – who scored twice in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Wigan – unable to play due to the terms of his loan from Newcastle.
Jordan Willis will miss out after suffering a minor concussion in the opening day win over the Latics with boss Tony Mowbray not prepared to take risks.
He told the Coventry Telegraph: “I played in an era when we had a huge bang and walked around in a daze for a week but you have to be cautious of these things these day and it’s the proper thing to do.”
